Advanced Cellular Glutathione® Extra Strength – 2oz 60ml Spray
The body naturally produces glutathione (the most potent antioxidant, which also regulates all other antioxidants), but environmental and dietary toxins, emotional stressors and various health conditions can deplete glutathione levels and impair immunity. This can leave the body vulnerable to inflammation or illness and may reduce natural cellular repair processes.
Glutathione (GSH) is one of the most critical molecules of the entire body. As the most important intracellular antioxidant, GSH regulates all other antioxidants while helping to prevent damage from reactive oxygen species, such as free radicals and peroxides.
ACG Glutathione Extra Strength from Results RNA also contains alpha lipoic acid, milk thistle and more, to help naturally support GSH absorption and action.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant amino acid that is a precursor to glutathione synthesis and a powerful free radical scavenger. This role is thought to allow NAC to take a major role in the improvement of immune function and treatment of respiratory diseases, among other ailments
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is a vitamin-like nutrient that can pass through the blood-brain barrier. It is thought to help modulate the cellular concentrations of free coenzyme A and Acetyl-coenzyme A, which are themselves needed in many cellular functions including the transfer of fatty acids through the mitochondrial membrane for energy production.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in high levels throughout the body that supports many body functions including protein synthesis, brain function, digestion, and the proper immune system function. L-Glutamine supplements may therefore help protect against exercise-related impairment of the immune system and enhance exercise performance.
L-Glutathione is a tripeptide, consisting of three amino acids—glutamate, cysteine, and lysine. Considered as “food for the immune cells” and “the miraculous tripeptide”, these amino acids are thought to be highly powerful in helping the body to fight against disease and infection.
Glutathione is described to be the “master antioxidant” that helps recharge all the other antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants play a major role in immune support because they prevent massive cellular destruction stabilizing free radical damage. When there are not enough antioxidants to protect the cells, free radicals attack healthy cells and break down health. Without Glutathione, the other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot perform their functions adequately to protect the body against disease.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fatty acid that is naturally present inside the body cells. It plays a major role in mitochondrial dehydrogenase reactions and thus, helps to produce the energy needed by the body to perform its normal functions. Its reduced form dihydrolipate also acts as an antioxidant that removes free radicals in the body.
Functioning both in water and in fat, Alpha Lipoic Acid also interacts with vitamin C and glutathione, which may in turn recycle vitamin E.
Milk Thistle is an herb noted for its liver health and detoxification supporting properties. As Glutathione is extremely important itself, Milk Thistle helps to restore liver glutathione levels to optimum levels. Silymarin is the active compound of milk thistle, which may help to protect the liver from many industrial toxins such as carbon tetrachloride, and more common agents like alcohol.
Supplemental ascorbic acid has been researched for positive effects on the levels of red blood cell glutathione. It may help to maintain the overall antioxidant protection capacity of the blood. Both ascorbic acid and glutathione (GSH) are important determinants of the intracellular redox state.
